Salem looks to fill Lovely's council seat


“I feel I could hit the ground running, so to speak,” Pinto said. “There’s a lot to work on. ... I love the job, (I) miss it.”

The top runner-up in the 2011 councilor-at-large election was Barcikowski, owner of Cafe Polonia in downtown Salem, followed by then-incumbent Pinto.

Corchado, an activist in the city’s Point neighborhood, served as Ward 1 councilor from 2004 to 2007.

Lovely will take over for retiring Sen. Fred Berry, a Peabody Democrat who has represented the district for 30 years.
